Abstract:There are timber deficits in Kenya and the situation can keep worsening if there are no mitigation measures. Wood deficits have been caused by deforestation and poor forestation interventions and the problem will keep growing because the demand for wood is rising for various applications such as furniture manufacture, fuel wood and for construction purposes. The furniture sector employs many people who may lose their livelihoods if there is no wood to keep manufacturing furniture and other wood products. Applying circular economy principle that can reduce increased exploitation of forestry products can reduce the effect of decreased wood production.
